500+ Head-Fier
So excited for this Japanese
I know, right? Same here. Also, am generally excited to see Yamaha return. "Excited" is an understatement, because Yamaha stands for something different for me. These guys did it a long time ago in the headphone industry, and now they are making a genuine return and taking it seriously.


Very interested in the performance, however the pricing in $US is quite marked up,
it's says JPY498,000 in the Japanese site, which is equivalent to $3471 at the current rate. :frowning2:
